1:55 am
to the boston celtics in 2a hours time. it's all falling apart as they head towards the play—offs. that's all we've got time for. until next time, goodbye. well, wednesday is going to be one of those days where you might look at the sky and just think the weather cannot make its mind up. it's really going to be that changeable from hour to hour. we'll have strong sunshine and downpours as well. some of them will bring thunder, possibly hail and some gusty winds as well. it's all thanks this area of low pressure. you can see the clouds spinning around here, that's been sitting to the south—west of the british isles over the last couple of days, and finally, that low will be barrelling across the uk. so into the early hours of wednesday morning,
1:56 am
already some showers around across a number of western and south—western areas and still, we have the cold air across scotland. in the last few days, throughout easter, we have snow across the northern parts of the uk. we still have the remnants of that cold weather in scotland and it's still with us on wednesday. but to the south, here's that showery low that will be moving across the uk. so the thinking is that first thing in the morning, some of us will have showers, others will have clear blue skies. it'll already be very mixed first thing in the morning. but let's zoom into scotland first of all because here, we still have the snow. it will be falling mostly across the hills and mountains but in the lowlands, i suppose, there is the chance of some sleet falling here. but you can see, it's sort of like peppering england and wales. so very hit and miss.
1:57 am
there is a chance that some of us will miss the showers altogether. whereas others might get lots of them. and then you've got the hail and thunder which i mentioned earlier on. now, eventually into thursday, that showery low moves out into scandinavia. you can see here it is, just approaching denmark. we're in between weather systems, and a chilly start to thursday. i think a frost in one of two areas. that's why temperatures will be a little bit lower on thursday, 10—12 degrees, but we've got a change on the way for thursday into friday. low pressure comes in. another area of weather, cloud and rain out west here. the winds are blowing out of the south. given some sunshine, maybe eastern areas, it is going to warm up again. so possibly getting up to around about 15 or 16 degrees on friday. in the west, where you have the cloud and rain, it's going to be quite a bit cooler. 10 degrees in belfast. towards the end of the week, friday, saturday possibly as well, still hanging onto some of the milder weather across south—eastern areas. very changeable weather over the next few days, but it will improve eventually. welcome to bbc news — broadcasting to viewers in north america
